    I am looking for a good starting load for a 284 with a 168 berger. gun is set up for a 3.135 oal with the vld. this touches the lands. I should have the gun from the smith (Dan Coffin from victor montana) in a week or so. I took apart a .40 moa model 700 vs in 6mm for this build so wish me luck. also looking for some 284 brass. thanks in advance for any help.

    I shoot a .284 Win in 1000yd BR and use 55grs of H4831SC with the Berger 168 VLD, oal is 3.185".
    I have a 30" barrel and velocity is 2960 fps, I've gone up to 56grs and just over 3000fps but groups weren't as good.
    I would start around 54grs and work up, should find something that works around there.
    Good luck,
